two manuscripts, of which the following
Is one. The other is simply a record of
events in which Mr. Quatermain was
not personally concerned-a Zulu novel,
the story of which was told to him by
the hero many years after the tragedy 1
had occurred. But with this we have
nothing to do at present.
I have often thought (Mr. Quater
main's manuscript begins) that I would I
set down on paper the events connected
with my marriage and the loss of my
most dear wife. Many years have now I
pas4ed since that event, and to some ex

though Heaven knows it is still keen
enough. On two or three occasions I
have even begun the record. Once I
gave it up because the writing of it de
pressed me beyond bearing, once be
cause I was suddenly called away upon
a journey, and the third time because a
Kaffir boy found my manuscript con
venient for lighting the kitchen fire.
But now that I am at leisure here in
England I will make a fourth attempt.
If I succeed, the story may serve to in
terest some one in after years when I
am dead and gone. It is a wild tale
enough, and suggests some curious re
I am the son of a missionary. My
father was originally curate in charge of
a small parish in Oxfordshire. lie had
already been some years married to my
dear mother when he went there, and he
had four children, of whom I was the
oungest. I remember faintly the place
there we lived. It was an ancient long
gray house, facing the road. There was
a very large tree of some sort in the gar
den. It was hollow, and we children
used to play about inside of it and knock
knots of wood from the rough bark. We all
slept in a kind of attic, and my mother
always came up and kissed us when we
were in bed. I used to wake up and see
her bending over me, a candle in her
hand. There was a curious kind of pole
projecting from the wall over my bed.
Once I was dreadfully frightened be
cause my eldest brother made me hang
to it by my hands. This is all I remem
ber about our old ho.me. It has been
pulled down long ago, or I would jour
ney there to see it.
A little further down the road was a
large house with big iron gates to it, and
on the top of the .gate pillars set two
stone lions, which were so hideous that
~oue %y peeping through the bars of
the gates. It was a gloomy-looking
place, with a tall yew hedge around it;
but in the summer-time some flowers
grew round the sun-dial in the grass
plat. This house was called the Hall,
and Squire Carson lived there. One:
Christmas-it must have been the Christ
mas before my father emigrated, or I
should not remember it-we children
went to a Christmas tree at the Hall.
There was a great party there, and foot
den wearing red waistcoats stood at the1
door. In the dining-room, which was
paneled with black oak, was the Christ-1
mas free. Squire Carson stood in front
of it. He was a tall, dark man, very
quiet in his manners, and he wore a
bunch of seals on his waistcoat. We
used to think him old, but as a matteri
of fact he was then not more than forty. 1

At that momn't Go nurL came haarry

ear. fc .. e.. ace turned d-adly
pale. le clutched at the table to sup
port himself, then staggered from the
room. My mother was dying!
It was some days af terwardis. I do not
know exactly how long, that my father
took me by the hand and led me up
stairs into the ig room that had been
my mother's bedrcom. There she lay
dead in her coflin, with flowers in her
hand. Along the wall of the room were
arranged three little white beds, and on
each o.f the beds la. one of my brothers.
They all looked as though they were
asleep, and they all had flowers in their
hands. My father told me to kiss them
all, because I should not s-e- tham any
more, and I did so, though I was very
frightened. I did not know why. Then
he took me in his arms and kissed me.
"The Lord hath given," he said, "and
the Lord hath taken away; blessed be
the name 9f the Lord."
I cried very much, and he took me
down-stairs, and after that I have only
a confused memnnory of men dressed in
black carrying heavy burdens towards
the gray churchyard!
Next comes a vision of a great ship
and wide, tossing wators. My father
could no Iongcr bear to live in England
after the loss that had fallen on him,
and made up :ais mind to emigrate to
South Africa. We must have been poor
at the time, indeed. I believe that a
large portion of our income went from
my father on my mother's death. At
any rate we traveled with the steerage
passengers, and the intense discomfort
of the journey. with the rough ways of
our fellow em:-rants,, still remains upon

my mind. At last it came to an end,
and we reached Africa, which I was not
to leave again for many, many years.
In those days civilization had not made
any great progress in Southern Africa.
My father went up the country and be
came a missionary among the Kaffirs,
near to where the town of Cradock now
stands, and here I grew to manhood.
There were a few Boer farmers in the
neighborhood, and gradually a little set
tlement of whites gathered around our
mission station. A drunken Scoteh
blacksmith and vwheelwrigt was abd.a
the most interesting character, wvho,
when he was s'ober, could quote the
Scottish poet Uurns and the "12
goldsby Legends" litcraliy by the page.
It was from him that I contracted a
fondness for the latter amusing writ
ings which has never left me. Burns
I never cared for so much, probably be
cause of the Scottish dialect which re
pelled me. What little education I got
much leaning toward books, nor he
much time to teach them to me. On the
other hand, I was always a keen ob
server of the ways of men and nature.
By the time I was twenty I could speak
Dutch and three or four Kaffir dialects
perfectly, and I doubt if there was any
body in South Africa who understood
native ways of thought and action more
completely than I did. Also I was
really a very good shot and horseman,
and Ithink- as, indeed, my subsequent
career proves to have been the case-a
great deal tougher than the majority of
men. Though I was then, as now, a
light, small man, nothing seemed to
tire me. 1 could bear any amount of
exposure and privation. and I never met
the native who was my master in feats
of endurance. Of course all that is dif
ferent now; I am speaking of my early
It may be wondered that I did not run
absolutely wild in surh surroundings,
but I was held back from this by my fa
ther's society. IHe was one of the
gentlest and most refined men that I
ever met; even the most savage Kaffir
loved him, and his influence was a very
good one for me. He uged to call him
self one of the world's failures. Would
that there were mnore such failures!
Every evening when his work was done
he would take bis prayer-book, and, sit
ting on the little stoop of our station,
would rend the evening psalms to him
self. Sometimes there was not light
enough for this, but it made no dif
ference; he knew thuem all by heart.
When he had finished he would look out
across the cultivated~ lands where the
mission K~a!Ers had their huts.
But I knew it was not these he saw,
but rather the genay Engl ish church, and
the gravy's ranged side hy side before the

It was there on the stoop that he died.
